FRIDAY 16 SEPTEMBER #daretoshare
Give my time
Carrying a genetic predisposition to or being at-risk for breast and ovarian cancer can have far-reaching medical, social, emotional, financial and physical implications for women and their families. If you’d like to support them and Pink Hope, you could get involved in some of the following activities. We’d love to have you on board!
Pink Hope Fundraising Events
Get some friends together and enjoy a lovely afternoon planning your very own fundraiser. Why not throw a Pink Hope High Tea? We’re famous for our high teas! Organise an afternoon of nibbles, conversation and fundraising to support our community, have fun with your community and support women who really need it. For more information and suggestions on running your own fundraiser, see below:
Bright Pink Lipstick Day
There are so many kinds of events you can run for Bright Pink Lipstick day, the only limit is your imagination. You could host a pink-themed cocktail night, a Sunday brunch, a pamper session with the girls, a guided hike somewhere nearby, a movie marathon, a cooking class… really the options are endless. We can’t wait to see what you come up with! To find out more, visit our Bright Pink Lipstick Day hub.
